Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour from Rome

Board your luxury coach, and travel from Rome to Tuscany with its scenic, rolling hills. Your first stop is Montepulciano, a town renowned for its fine wine and views. The Renaissance hilltown is best-known for its production of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a full-bodied red wine. Learn about it on a walking tour, and discover highlights such as the Florence-style clock tower, the cathedral with its yet-to-be-finished façade, medieval wine cellars and the old town walls.

After a break for photos, travel further into Tuscany to explore the area around Montalcino. Step inside Sant’ Antimo Abbey, and then soak up the vistas that stretch beyond the vineyards.

Hear how the local vineyards produce the acclaimed Brunello di Montepulciano wine, and then sample a glass for yourself over a 3-course lunch at a local farm. In traditional Tuscan style, the menu features fresh farm-grown produce as well as a selection of local wine.

From the farm, travel on to Pienza, one of the region’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Here, enjoy up to 45 minutes of free time to explore. The layout of the town was created by Pope Pius II, who wanted to change the look of his birth town. Admire the historic center, which stays true to the pope’s vision, and gaze at the fine architecture that abounds. If you are a fan of food, check the shops for pecorino cheese, arguably Pienza’s most prized product.

Your day trip finishes with your coach journey back from Tuscany to Rome.

We had an amazing time on our tour. The views of all the villages were amazing. The bathroom breaks were at a little shop/cafe where you could sample chocolates and wine. The city of Montalcino was beautiful. The lunch at the vineyard was tasty. We really enjoyed our day.

This tour was great! although a large group, it did not feel like it. Views were great, even with the fog.

This tour was a true taste of Italy. We enjoyed the day among the olive trees and a visiting Montalcino, an centurys old and beautiful church where Monks tend to the grounds and worship. Rolling Italian hills are everywhere and anywhere you look could be an Italian postcard. The views are breathtaking. We were treated to dinner in a local farmhouse/winery. Authentic local noodles and spaghetti sauce were served by the cook, a beautiful old Italian women, while we were surrounded by barrels of wines behind the center tables. This was the Italian experience I had pictured in my mind - and it was amazing!

Great tour, lovely food and a very knowledgeable host. Beware of the bendy rounds in the hills, I felt quite sick. Worth it for the views. Shame you can and #39;t pick your tour mates, experience was somewhat dampened by an incredibly rude American lady. Be polite to your fellows people.
